- Free domain name - what's the catch?
Re: Free domain name - what's the catch?
.nr is the country code domain for Nauru, an island nation.
co.nr is a second-level domain within .nr, which is not an official
subdivision of that domain (it's not endorsed by the .nr registry),
but rather was simply a domain that somebody registered and then chose
to offer free subdomains within.
anything.co.nr is a third-level domain within .co.nr. The owner of
co.nr lets people register names free within it, and presumably picked
that name to resemble the pattern of such things as co.uk; several
country code domains have "co" as a second level domain used as one of
the official categories under which people can register (standing for
"company" or "commercial", intended to distinguish commercial sites
from other things such as nonprofits and governments). However, it is
not any sort of official registration, and you don't have actual
ownership of anything when you take such a free "registration".

I agree with the other person's suggestion that you find one good base
domain and use subdomains of it for your various sites; I do this with
dan.info. If the sites are noncommercial, I'd suggest using something
other than .com for your base domain.
